Fresh pics: Light rail stations taking shape in Shoreline

Publish Date

If you've been north of Seattle lately, you may have noticed the construction progress taking place as light rail extends up to Lynnwood.

The Lynnwood Link project extends light rail from Northgate into Snohomish County, serving four stations, Shoreline South/148th, Shoreline North/185th, Mountlake Terrace and Lynnwood City Center.

Our photography team recently took a trip up to the Shoreline stations, capturing the crews at work along with some sweet aerial shots. Take a look!

Upon opening, riders will enjoy fast, frequent and reliable service between south Snohomish County and the University of Washington, downtown Seattle, the Eastside, Sea-Tac Airport and more.

Work is ongoing to identify new opening timelines for four light rail projects in construction, including the Lynnwood Link Extension. This project is currently trending toward a summer or fall 2024 opening timeframe.
